Reston, VA (PRWEB) June 8, 2010
The 3rd Annual Govplace Federal Agency & Industry Golf Tournament was held on May 21, 2010 at the 1757 Golf Club in Dulles, VA.
There were 120 golfers from several federal agencies and manufacturer partner companies participated in this charitable event. Proceeds from this year’s golf tournament will be donated to two worthy causes – The Armed Forces Foundation and The Children’s Inn at the National Institute of Health (NIH).
The Armed Forces Foundation (www.armedforcesfoundation.org) is a non-profit organization whose charter is to provide assistance to members of the military community and their families – such as medical bills, legal fees, housing, and bereavement assistance.
The Children’s Inn at The National Institute of Health (NIH) (www.childrensinn.org) is a residential “home away from home” for sick children and their families. Children and their families stay at the Inn while receiving medical treatments, the world’s leading biomedical research center. The Children’s Inn provides a fun, healing environment for everyone.
Generous golfers donated 3 large bins of non-perishable food for The Children’s Inn, and purchased mulligans and 50/50 raffle tickets, with proceeds being donated to the two worthy causes.
After registration and a continental breakfast, golfers played a scramble format at the recently completed golf course. After golfing, attendees were treated to a few words by Adam Robinson, CEO of Govplace, Kathy Russell from Children’s Inn at NIH and James Fenlon from the Armed Forces Foundation.
During the awards ceremony, the winning foursome, comprised of Brian Kelley, Jerry Dowell, Brett Pfrommer and Don Elhussen, each received a new golf bag and a free round of golf at 1757 Golf Club. Second place winners, Scott Beard, Jeff Kavulik, KC Cook and Scott Hopkins, received gift certificates from Golf Galaxy as well as a prize bag. The Longest Drive winner, Dan Nobleman as well as the Closest to the Pin winner, Mike Downey, received new golf clubs.
